The weather yesterday was overcast and there was rain in the forecast so we used the car for transportation instead of the motorcycle. We spent some time shopping for groceries, first at the Costco store in Eugene and then at a natural food store near the university to stock up on some supplies. Somehow, we were gone all afternoon and not once did we encounter much for the forecast.

Today the rain did come though it was intermittent and we decided to use the wet time to take a factory tour of the Country Coach motorhome factory in Junction City. As motorhome owners, we find factory tours to be very interesting and it's always nice to see what the competition has to offer. The tour was great, Country Coach builds a solid rig and their products are beautiful but at the end of it, we still felt that our coach was better and that is the way it should be otherwise we would be forever wishing for something else.

The weather continued to be unsettled so after the tour we stopped at Strike City Lanes, a 10-pin bowling alley. We are not avid bowlers but we bowled in Thunderbay and here we were bowling again in Eugene, Oregon...twice in two months! We had a great time and Roger, the manager, was very friendly. Rick won three games and I won one, we got some much-needed exercise and neither of us got "bowlers butt" (we have pulled those muscles before and it's not fun!). It was a good way to spend a couple of wet days and with sunshine in the forecast for the next few days, you can be sure we will be spending them touring around on the motorcycle.
